Swarovski ATC / STC Compact 56mm 17-40x Spotting Scope

Burnt Orange

As a backpack hunter, I have been waiting for this new ultra light spotting scope from Swarovski for YEARS, and it was certainly worth the wait. Where other micro spotters are focused on size and weight, Swarovski payed close attention to the viewing experience. A whopping 20mm of eye relief means that you'll be able to use this spotter for longer sessions. And the impressive 17-40x is only capable due to the extraordinary glass. We expect to be carrying this spotter around a lot this fall and so far its the real deal. VERY good resolution in good light, and a very comfortable viewing experience. This is going to change the way a lot of guys hunt.

The ATC/STC is an ideal companion for activities where pack size and weight play a decisive role. With its compact dimensions, the spotting scope is smaller than a
standard sheet of paper and will fit easily in any backpack or carry-on bag. The ATC/STC only weighs just slightly over 2 pounds and won’t slow you down on long
hunts or adventures. 

A removable half shell is attached to the bottom of the spotting scope using the tripod thread, which allows it to rest in your hand or on a firm surface without blocking the
focusing wheel (ATC) or focusing and zoom wheel (STC). This allows comfortable, stable observation even without a tripod. The carrying strap supplied can be fitted directly to
the spotting scope and provides fast access.

Compact Lightness

Ideal for rough terrain and remote areas. Its light weight and compact dimensions make the ATC/STC the ideal companion on all of your hunts and adventures.

Impressive Versatility

Thought out in the minutest detail, the compact spotting scope impresses with its intuitive operation. The removable half shell on the bottom allows easier positioning on a surface and unimpeded turning of the focusing wheel (ATC) and focusing and zoom wheel (STC) at all times. To capture special moments, the VPA allows you to quickly connect the ATC/STC to your smartphone.

Overwhelming Fascination

you to experience crucial details with optical perfection.

Super compact. Clarity Is awesome. Quality of the build is typical of swarovski, excellent.

Super Impressed - More to Test

I've taken this out a few times on the winter range to look and experience in low light and I'm very impressed. I've owned the Maven S1 and S2. The S2 never had enough zoom, but was great glass. The S1 has been my go too for about 5 years. Comparing this side by side with that large 80mm spotter I'm crazy impressed. The swaro is more clear than the maven, has a LARGER field of view and has a great viewing experience with the eye piece! As it gets darker in the evening...particularly the last 5-10 minutes, you can see the brightness of the S1, but the Swaro actually stay's more clear! (but yes more dim) That all being said I'm going to sell my S1 and use the swaro this year and when I need a bigger spotter I'll invest in a Kowa or Swaro. One thing to note for me...I think the FOV and viewing experience are worth the price jump from other great small spotters.
